The AEC market continues to build on its strong start to the year, as February saw a 20.8 percent increase in solicitations compared to January. This bodes well for vendors building their pipeline as the spring months ahead tend to bring even more procurement activity.

AEC procurement at the state level accounted for 30.8 percent of solicitations released in February, followed by cities (30.2%) and counties (15.4%). Colleges/universities released 9.1 percent of the month’s bids, while independent school districts released 7.9 percent. Special districts accounted for 6.4 percent of the nation’s AEC activity.  

California bumped Texas out of the top spot for most AEC bids released. Texas landed in second, followed by Washington, Michigan and Virginia. The states with the fewest AEC solicitations include West Virginia, Montana, Nevada and Vermont.
